Spontaneous Gratitude for my Friday

I know most people would call this Monday, but our week ends on Mondays right now, so it is 'our Friday'.

I am feeling better today. Not 100%, but much less like I have been run over by a truck. I am feeling especially grateful for everything today. The weather has been mild and beautiful all day long. I spent part of my afternoon collecting rocks from the would be garden beds and placing them in the rose garden that boarders my patio. I had help with this. And the whole time my children were diligently finishing their school work, on their own. And they called it the 'best school day ever' because I slipped an organic hard candy into their nature study workbox. It was a beautiful day.

The history of Spontaneous Gratitude.

Today I am grateful for:

Pretty flowering Quince branches being forced on my table.

Amazing children, doing their work quietly without complaint.

And playing quietly when they were done.

My little helper.

The dump truck being used for the forces of good, and not evil.

This beautiful day.

Evidence of Spring.
